New York City's 24th Annual April Fools' Day Parade

New York City’s 24th Annual April Fools’ Day Parade, organized by notorious prankster Joey Skaggs, takes place this Wednesday, April 1st, starting noon at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street. Here’s the full press release.

The theme for this year’s parade is “Take the Money and Run.” Led by Grand Marshall Bernard Madoff, the parade will kick off with the SEC Marching Band playing the Beatles’ hit song “Money.” Spectators are requested to participate by photo-copying hundred dollar bills and tossing them out windows or from roof-tops at the passing parade instead of confetti.
